    A very sad post for all those who remember, and those who know any of the names above.
    Our thoughts are with those left behind, both families and friends.

    Many good men.

    Remember also those who came back different men than those who went out!

    Always remembered.I have a vivid memory of marine Graeme MacPhersons funeral taking place as I could see the church from my primary 7 classroom and my teacher telling me not too stare but me and my classmates were looking out of respect and I hope my own children have that respect for all the brave troops before and after this conflict that have given up there lives so bravely.

    A sad statistic; more have killed them selves since coming home than were killed down there.

    For The Fallen
    With proud thanksgiving, a mother for her children,
    England mourns for her dead across the sea.
    Flesh of her flesh they were, spirit of spirit,
    Fallen in the cause of the free.

    Solemn the drums thrill: Death august and royal
    Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres.
    There is music in the midst of desolation
    And a glory that shines upon our tears.

    They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
    Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
    They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
    They fell with their faces to the foe.

    They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
    At the going down of the sun and in the morning
    We will remember them.

    They mingle not with laughing comrades again;
    They sit no more at familiar tables of home;
    They have no lot in our labour of the day-time;
    They sleep beyond England's foam.

    But where our desires are and our hopes profound,
    Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from sight,
    To the innermost heart of their own land they are known
    As the stars are known to the Night;

    As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust,
    Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain,
    As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness,
    To the end, to the end, they remain.
